4 comfortable fabrics for this scorching SUMMER

The fabric you choose during summer makes a big difference in your appearance and comfy. We bring you a list of perfect picks!

SILK BLENDS
Don’t misinterpret silk to be a fabric meant only for winters. Silk blends, a lighter and softer version of silk made from natural fiber is considered to be an ideal summer fabric. Unlike raw or pure silk, it doesn’t stick to the body making you sweat or feel sticky. Sport a flowing silk blend dress for an evening outing. Pair it with minimal jewelry, as too much of it can make your skin itch.

KHADI MAGIC
When the heat becomes too much to bear, khadi comes to your rescue. The Mahatma yarn has taken the fashion world by storm. Give a modern touch to your khadi outfit by wearing a pair of khadi shorts or a shrug.

CONVENTIONAL COTTON
When it comes to summer wear, cotton seems to be the best option. The best thing about cotton is it makes you feel comfortable even when it is very humid. It easily absorbs the sweat from your body and helps your skin breathe making you feel cool. Pairing a cotton kurta with a pair of palazzo pants will make for a simple yet interesting look.

CLASSY LINEN
Linen is one of the best summer fabrics known for being the lightest of all. It is comfortable and has sweat absorbing properties. The main benefit of wearing linen during summer is that it allows easy air flow and reflects heat better. Linen saris in shades of pink, grey and lavender can add style to your evening wear. A linen sari with a quarter sleeve blouse in a slightly darker shade with a tight bun or a hairband for a perfect summer look. Opt for smart linen trousers and dresses as work-wear to make that commute to work slightly easy.

Be Relaxed with Khesh in this SUMMER

Khesh is a new kind of designer saree made with some old sarees in a new concept. Basically originating from Birbhum district of West Bengal, it is now available to the all the places of Bengal. 

Because of the tradition of Khesh weaving in Birbhum in the last many years, a market for old sarees has come up in some nominated places of Birbhum. The Weavers bought old saress in bulk or else they have their own suppliers who collect old saress from the village and wash them ready to sell. Many other weavers depend on householders to give them sarees in return of something essential households items. 

Mechanism:

The Khesh weaving process is simple. The warp is with new yarn and the weft is with strips of thin cloth obtained by tearing old sarees length wise. First a old saree is picked, washed, cleaned. Then the saree or the cloth is separated thread by thread and then kept along with the other yarn kept for to weave a new saree. As the new saree is being weaved the old pieces are picked up randomly and it makes a beautiful design. Its given a symmetry. Then the sarees are given touch of either fabric paints or applique to make it more appealing. It is total handloom saree and 100% cotton. It is ideal for daily use. It can be home washed. 

It is hereby mention that the old sarees have to be of cotton in order that they tear easily. Experiments using synthetic sarees have also been undertaken, since the propensity to wear synthetic sarees is on the rise even in villages. But the problem with synthetic sarees is that they cannot be torn by hand and have to be cut by scissors. This increases the time for this process and therefore the cost. 

Art Hut also brought some colorful and gorgeous design in Khesh based on Tant in vibrant colour and design. it is best sarees in Summer to wear and ladies get more pleasure wearing this saree in this scorching heat. Need your feedback regarding our collections of Khesh.

A rhapsody of ethnicity -The Library of Sarees

Library – when the word comes to our mind, a world of books pops up in front of our eyes but library is a collection of sources, from where we can enrich ourselves. It is not all about books only but library can be for anything related to our daily life where variety in lifestyle will not be a barrier to the middle class economic group. Oh its our wish…..

When we talk about reading, it is impossible for anyone to purchase all the books to read. So to enrich your knowledge, Library is the place which gives us the opportunity to feel the essence and to assimilate the immense domain of books. Library is a concept which was started for thinking of books but it is such a unique concept which should not be restricted to any particular subject or any specific interest. It should be a treasure house and the treasure can be anything. The main concept of library is to make people facilitate for having the things which can’t be possible to purchase every time but without purchasing they can enjoy those, they can have the pleasure of their excellence.

Taking this distinctive concept we have already added different other thoughts and now we have film libraries, digital libraries and many more. So why the art and craft are standing one step back? We can also do the revolution in the field of art.

India is a mine of artistry. Artists are reflecting their creativity in their works. But how many of us can experience them? We may buy a few. But is it enough to feel the essence completely? If we create a library, we can have them all in exchange for a little.

 

Art Hut is trying to take an initiative as a small part of this vast concept. We have thought to initiate the idea and have a library of our own products. We will start with our own handcrafted Sarees. We are going to have our own ”Saree Library”, where no one is bound to purchase but one can come, borrow and experience our products in exchange of a small amount for a certain time, return us and can take another one. Library is enriching us with books and knowledge from a long ago, gradually the idea is taken to other fields. Now it’s the time to implement it in the art world as well as in the fashion world. It’s time to make our Fashion Library. But really we need your feedback about the conception, need to know the viability of the project of our “Saree Library”.

Please visit our page of Art Hut in face book to check our collection and give us your feedback that how one dress can meet the expectation of hundreds.

The Fairy Season

The world is in a mood of fair in these days of December. Everywhere around the globe, some ceremony is going on or going to be start very soon. People are in festive mood for various reasons. Christmas is coming and after that our much awaited New Year. We will flourish our joy to get the best out of these. Art Hut is wishing a joyful December to all.

Art Hut was also a part of a fair for last one month, participated in West Bengal Handicrafts Fair, 2016 in Milan Mela Prangon, Kolkata. For last one month it was an awesome experience to enjoy the rapid changing scenario. Acquiring new customers with different moods, explaining the different boutique works to the strangers from different location and to make them understand the value of those works were the main objective of team Art Hut. We met so many people from different part of district, state and country but most importantly we met some of the International prospects from Sri Lanka, U.K and U.S.A. We made them understand the value of West Bengal handicrafts and this cottage industry. Apart from doing business, Art Hut was involved to share the stories of West Bengal’s handicrafts to the rest of the world through their activities in the stall and through their facebook page and twitter. We were honored by many persons from different part of our society for our initiatives and works. But still these are not enough to us as sky is also not the limit. It is just a opening of a new way to us and we have to walk miles. Last few years Art Hut was only busy in making profit from this handicraft fair as one platform was required to stand alone. But this year, it was something different as we were not only bounded to business purpose but we tried to interact different minded people and tried to understand their feelings regarding this fair and initiative. We tried to understand the choice of people who likes handicrafts.

Some Glimpses of Handicraft of West Bengal

“Karigorer Hat” was the place of excellence of the state. Many award winning artisan showcased their works in front of the visitor to make them speechless. They showed that a bamboo root can increase the value of a drawing room or one artificial handmade paper flower can make a garden more colourful and vibrant. Scales of Fish can make some excellent jewelry to be beautiful. With all of these, last one month was just an valuable experience to Art Hut. 

Yesterday, the end of this journey was announced for this year. So many people were united in the same ground from different state and different culture but they were united for last one month for the sake of art and culture, for the sake of creativity. It was the time to say good bye to all of them as everybody will be busy in their daily schedule from today onward but the moments we share with everybody for last one month will be remembered and those will be the oxygen for us to move on to the next level.

We want to be more experimental and more creative to portray our own artistry. We want to listen the stories of world handicraft and interested to share those stories to our readers. We welcome your ideas and thoughts to enhance us in all aspect and to grow universally. Please put your valuable feedback to us to guide us to the next level.

Shalwar – A daily outfit of Indian Women

Shalwar kameez, also spelled salwar kameez or shalwar qameez, is a traditional outfit originating in the Indian Subcontinent. It is a generic term used to describe different styles of dress. The shalwar kameez can be worn by both men and women, but styles differ by gender. The shalwar (pantaloons/drawers) and the kameez (body shirt) are two garments combined to form the shalwar kameez. Now a day’s Shalwar Kameez became an essential ladieswear in South Asia, especially in India, Pakistan and other countries.

History

The Shalwar are a form of baggy trousers and the kameez or qamis is a shirt of varying length. Garments cut like the kameez are known in many cultures. According to Dorothy Burnham, of the Royal Ontario Museum, the “seamless shirt,” woven in one piece on warp-weighted looms, was superseded in early Roman times by cloth woven on vertical looms and carefully pieced so as not to waste any cloth. 10th century cotton shirts recovered from the Egyptian desert are cut much like the kameez or the contemporary Egyptian Djellaba or Jellabiye. The word kameez is originally an Arabic word and is therefore also spelt with a Q, as in Qameez or Qamis.

Description:

The shalwar are loose pajama -like trousers. The legs are wide at the top, and narrow at the ankle. The kameez is a long shirt or tunic, often seen with a Western-style collar; however, for female apparel, the term is now loosely applied to collarless or mandarin collared kurtas . The kameez might be worn with pajamas as well, either for fashion or comfort. Some kameez styles have side seams (known as the chaak), left open below the waist-line, giving the wearer greater freedom of movement.

The kameez can be sewn straight and flat, in an “A” shape design or flowing like a dress: there are a variety of styles. Modern kameez styles are more likely to have European-inspired set-in sleeves. If the tailor’s taste or skills are displayed, it will be seen in the shape of the neckline and the decoration of the kameez. The kameez may be cut with a deep neckline, sewn in diaphanous fabrics, or styled in cap-sleeve or sleeveless designs.

There are many styles of shalwar like the Peshawari shalwar, Balochi shalwar, Sindhi choreno and the Punjabi shalwar.

Although various regions of South Asia wear the outfit in its various forms, the outfit was originally only popular on a wide scale in Afghanistan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Balochistan and the Punjab region of Pakistan and India.  However, the shalwar kameez has now become popular across South Asia.

Different forms of Shalwar Kameez

Anarkali suit

The shalwar kameez known as the Anarkali Suit is named after the court dancer from Lahore. The Anarkali suit is a timeless style which has become very popular. The Anarkali suit is made up of a long, frock-style top and features a slim fitted bottom. This style of suit links South Asia with the women’s Firaq Purtaq (frock and shalwar) of northwestern Pakistan and Afghanistan and to the traditional women’s Central Asian Clothing of parts of Central Asia. It also links to the Punjab region where the Anarkali suit is similar to the anga and the Peshwaz worn in Jammu.

Afghanistan suits

The styles of shalwar kameez worn in Afghanistan include the Khet partug, Perahan tunban and Firaq partug. Perahan tunban worn by most Pashtun males in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

Pashtun suits

As a chiefly rural and nomadic population, the Pashtun dress is typically made from light linens, and are loose fitting for ease of movement. The Pashtun dress includes local forms of the shalwar kameez, which are differently made for males and females. The traditional male dress includes the Khet partug and Perahan wa tunban. Males usually wear kufi, Peshawari cap, turban, sindhi cap or pakul as traditional headgear. The traditional female dress is the Firaq partūg. Women typically wear solid-coloured trousers, a long kamīs shirt with a belt. Sometimes they will wear an encompassing burqa over this outfit or a tsādar on their head.

Peshawari shalwar suit

The traditional dress of Peshawar and other parts of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan is the khalqa (gown) which opens at the front or shirt which does not open at the front, and the Peshawari shalwar which is very loose down to the ankles. The Peshawari shalwar can be used with a number of upper garments and is part of the clothing of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

Balochi suits

Men’s Balochi suit

The clothing of Balochistan, Pakistan includes the shalwar kameez which when worn by males consists of a very baggy shalwar using large lengths of cloth. The kameez is also loose, which traditionally is long with long sleeves. The Balochi shalwar kameez is similar to the styles worn in Afghanistan. The present Balochi shalwar kameez replaced the earlier version which consisted of a robe to the ankles and a shalwar using cloth of up to 40 yards.

Women’s Balochi Suit

The female Balochi suit consists of the head scarf, long dress and a shalwar.

Punjabi suits

The traditional shalwar kameez worn in the Punjab region is cut differently to the styles worn in Balochistan and Afghanistan and is known as a “Punjabi suit” with the kameez being cut straight and flat with side slits (which is a local development as earlier forms of kameez did not have side slits). The shalwar is wide at the top but fits closely to the legs and is gathered at the ankles. The Punjabi shalwar is also cut straight and gathered at the ankles with a loose band reinforced with coarse material. In rural Punjab, the shalwar is still called the suthan which is a different garment that was popular in previous centuries, alongside the churidar and kameez combination (which is still popular). In Britain South Asian women from the Punjab region have brought the dress to the mainstream, and even high-fashion, appeal. The Punjabi suit is popular in other regions of South Asia, such as Mumbai and Sindh. Punjabi suits are also popular among young women in Bangladesh and are especially popular amongst school girls in India. The outfit is also popular in Afghanistan, where it is called the Punjabi.

There are lots of other varieties of Shalwar Suits available in various location of South Asia. The availability depends on the origin, life style, daily work and other factors. But the most important part of this dress, It became a very essential wear to the female of this region for various benefits of the same. We in Art Hut, are continuously trying to innovate more creative and fashionable dresses in a pocket friendly prices. We have created cotton based shalwar with variety of stitch work in vibrant colour. Your support and inspiration will smooth our future.
